Trump Says He Will Support DACA If Congress Supports His Wall

The status of almost 800,000 Dreamers was called into question in September when President Donald Trump rescinded the Obama-era program that had protected them, known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), giving Congress six months to enact the program into law.

Besides overhauling the country's green-card system, the Trump administration's wish list also includes the funding of a controversial border wall along the U.S. -Mexico border and a crackdown on unaccompanied minors entering the country.

Last month, Trump and Democratic leaders of the House and Senate discussed a potential deal to preserve DACA in exchange for measures restricting immigration and enhancing border security.

These recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, often called "Dreamers", have been the focal point of recent talks between Trump and Democratic leaders of Congress.

The immigration demands that the administration of President Donald Trump sent to Congress on Sunday is likely to complicate any deal with Democrats regarding the protection for roughly 700,000 young people now facing possible deportation from the USA, reports said.

In early September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that DACA was being rescinded, which meant that about 800,000 immigrants who entered the country as minors and had stayed on-and who, at this point, knew no other life-would lose their ability to work legally in the US and, in some cases, have their driver's licenses revoked.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a press conference on President Donald Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Pelosi and Schumer said the proposed reforms released Sunday are a reversal of what they had agreed upon with the president.

"The principles the president has put out show he understands what's broken in our immigration system and what's holding down wages for American workers", Cotton said in a statement.

Trump wants Congress to enact laws to circumvent court rulings against indefinite detention of criminals who can not be deported and allow the government to keep them in custody.

President Donald Trump delivered his list of immigration policy objectives to Capitol Hill on Sunday, setting the stage for a major showdown with lawmakers.

"We told the President at our meeting that we were open to reasonable border security measures", the letter continued.

For law enforcement, Trump vowed to take on sanctuary cities or states that have blocked federal efforts in dealing with illegal immigrants.

"This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise", the legislators said in a joint statement. With this, President Trump is moving towards fulfilling his electoral promise to choke immigration to protect jobs for the United States citizens.

There was no reference to the H-1B visas used by American companies to hire highly-skilled professional from overseas but some proposals were meant to prevent "replacement of U.S. citizen workers by non-immigrant workers (such as those on H-1B) or the preferential hiring of such foreign workers". These are reasonable proposals that will build on the early success of President Trump's leadership.
